A pub in the town of Newbridge, McGowan's has revealed plans for a fundraiser to raise awareness over the spiking of drinks in pubs and nightclubs.

Management at the venue have also issued an appeal for anyone else who was allegedly spiked to come forward to them.

Michael McGowan, the owner of the pub, said that staff are currently organising the event, and plan to invite members of the local council and An Garda Síochana to speak the event. No firm date has as yet been set.

He added that all funds will go towards Naas General Hospital.
